Potentially The Best DJ/Urban/4Cross Frame Available

Rating:
The Good:

Incredible stability even at high speeds, awesome steering control, fun inspiring ride quality, stiff and durable frame, comes with a seatpost, spare bushings and extra derailleur hanger.

The Bad:

Slightly longish chainstays, no option to run Maxle or thru-axle. Minor bitches really...

Overall Review:

I've spent the entire summer riding this bike just about everywhere. In fact it's the bike I choose to ride to work on every day because it's just fun to ride anywhere. I'm not much of dirt jumper but if you read other reviews you'll know this bike is more than capable in that arena. What I can tell you is that this frame shines in just about every other scenario from slalom racing, to mini-DH, to Super D racing, and even XC riding. All of which I've done on the Rampant. I really didn't intend to use this bike for XC because I have other bikes that would work better; But I was pumped to ride it once I got it built and it was Wednesday, Read More »

I'm not much of dirt jumper but if you read other reviews you'll know this bike is more than capable in that arena. What I can tell you is that this frame shines in just about every other scenario from slalom racing, to mini-DH, to Super D racing, and even XC riding. All of which I've done on the Rampant. I really didn't intend to use this bike for XC because I have other bikes that would work better; But I was pumped to ride it once I got it built and it was Wednesday, which meant our weekly XC group ride was happening so I said "what the hell". Anyway, I found out the Rampant can actually climb pretty well, but more important - it rips on the high-speed descents with amazing stability considering it's small size and shortish travel. In the cornering department, it can do no wrong in my eyes. I turn the bar, lean, look, and it goes there. Durability has been a non issue so far. The bushing have held up well and the fame still looks good after a spring, summer, fall, and now winter of almost daily riding. I haven't even lubed the bushings yet because nothing feels wrong. On a positive note: Banshee goes the extra mile by including extra bushings and a spare derailleur hanger, which means if you do have an accident you're not left hanging for even a moment. You can fix it and forget it. The industry could really learn from that move. I can also say Banshee has been a great company to work with from a dealer perspective. Great guys and great service. The bad points are very minor IMO - the chainstays are slightly long, but I'm sure they help contribute to the bikes sure footed stability. Plus I can still get it to manual and wheelie so what more do you need? My other qualm - no option for T-A or Maxle is maybe a little more important to me because I have wheels I could run, but the frame is laterally very stiff and I haven't fell a hint of flex that a solid axle system would help. This bike definitely delivers the goods as promised. Five Stars.

Banshee Rampant

The Good:

I was very impressed at how it handled speed and it just takes the harshness out of the bumps. When cornering I found it like to squat a little which in the 4cross at angel fire was actually good and allowed me to keep my body position where I wanted rather than it falling into the bike.

The Bad:

The only thing is it is a little heavier than a Hardtail and may be a little slower accellorating out of the gate at a 4cross but apart from that its great.

Overall Review:

Although I do not own one I had a chance to ride a mates and this was my first experience on a small dual suspension bike. I found it unreal at jumping, XC and 4cross... Once she gets rolling this bike is unstoppable and will handle any kind of beating.

The Good:

Light weight, flickable, excelant pedaling, nice active braking, plush suspension, easy conering and how forgiving it is.

The Bad:

Um... hard to clean around the pivots?

Overall Review:

This bike offers all the benifits of a hardtail; light weight, flickable, good pedaling, with all the benifits of a full sus; better braking, better cornering, more forgiving. All of this enables the rampant to exel at any discipline of mountain biking. What was most impressive to me was how well this bike pedals.
